Burden
Man, be joyful, and mirth thou make,
for Christ is made man for thy sake.
Verses
1.Man, be merry, I thee rede,
but beware what mirthës thou make.
Christ is clothëd in thy weed,
and he is made man for thy sake.
2.He came fro his Father seat
Into this world to be thy make;
Man, beware how thou him treat,
For he is made man for thy sake.
3.Look thou mercy ever cry,
Now and alway, rathe and late,
And he will set thee wonder high,
For he is made man for thy sake.
